Marshal Dillon has his hands full when a saloon girl, Dolly Varden, is believed to be in a rigged card game with a dealer named Frank Paris. It seems that Paris wins but when one of the cowboys has Dolly next to them they win. So what happens is that the cowboys pay Dolly to stand by them and the team of Dolly/Paris wins money either way.
All this does is cause trouble at the Long Branch as the cowboys are wanting to outbid each other to have Dolly stand by them. Some even want to pay her just to go away from the table. And when guns, liquor and gambling are taking in combination it usually means trouble. And for Marshal Dillon he has to find a way to get the two out of town.
A nice western story that was entertaining to watch. Whitney Blake, that played Dolly, was a real tiger in this episode as she gave Marshal Dillon grief when she uses her female status as a way of getting around his orders. Even though it was a bit overplayed it still was refreshing and entertaining to watch. Good show.
